The second edition of the Límbic Catalan music festival, promoted by Òmnium Cultural, lands on April 5 and 6 after its successful first edition in 2022, which closed with 22,000 spectators in the streets of Terrassa. This 2023 the festival will offer an x-ray of the quality and diversity of the most influential contemporary Catalan music among young people.
During the presentation, the president of Òmnium Cultural, Xavier Antich, highlighted that the festival "brings together the most outstanding, daring and groundbreaking creators of the contemporary scene".
And his words are reaffirmed after announcing the program, which features around thirty emerging Catalan artists, including the singer from Eufòria, Triquell, the rapper Lildami and the group from Mallorca Da Souza, and two names that will not be revealed for a few days before the festival.
Music, poetry, dance or theater, are a small sample of all the disciplines that will fill the streets of Sitges for two afternoons and two nights in a format, according to Antich, "100% free, 100% itinerant and 100% Catalan".
Límbic aims to be a space to disseminate the culture of the territory through creators with their own works, as well as highlighting the "cultural DNA of Sitges", according to the mayoress of the city. "We have worked hard to democratize culture, to guarantee everyone this right to culture; Limbic is an expression for this festival of promoting culture to show the world."
The festival will open on the 5th at 6:00 p.m. with the performance La Glòria del Límbic by the singer, actress and vedet Gloria Ribera, and she will do so singing Catalan cuplés and covering avant-garde songs on the beach of Sant Sebastià. In 2021, the artist premiered her show Parné, a tribute to the diffusion of the cupletistas and her words.
The festival will close with a performance by the Catalan rapper par excellence, Lildami, at 10:25 p.m. on the 6th on La Fragata beach. Winner of the Enderrock award for best hip-hop and urban music artist twice in a row, he will present his new and third album, Dummy, in a renovated and improved format that night.
As a novelty, this year the contemporary Catalan music festival Límbic will feature the special Tardeo, the Radio Primavera Sound podcast conducted live by Andrea Gumes with interviews with Quim Carandell, singer and guitarist of La Ludwig Band, the artist Ikram Bouloum and the pianist Clara Peya.
